Ethereal Live is very pleased to welcome Inner Place to our net label for his first release. Inner Place is a project from artist IX from Tehran, Iran. Inner Place creates wonderful ambient music both in the studio and live. For his release with us of course, we are treated to a special live set.
"Biosphere" is a supple and dynamic ambient album, that resonates upon the first listen. IX has done a fine job of taking the listener on a slow motion dream-like journey. The music and sounds of "Biosphere" ebb and flow throughout each of the eight tracks as effortlessly as water lapping against the tide. Inner Place shows great mastery over his live setting, not rushing the music, and modulating the compositions in a natural successive way. Very nice synthesizer work throughout the album executed with a sense of control, surprise, and punctuation. Inner Place also does a superb job of tying together minimal field recordings in just the right places within each of the compositions.
We think "Biosphere" is an exquisite album, which touches and transcends the borders of ambient, dark ambient, space music. Highly recommended. "Biosphere" is released in 320k mp3.
